Suzanne Tyrpak (suzannetyrpak) | 23 comments DATING MY VIBRATOR DATING MY VIBRATOR (and other true fiction) by Suzanne Tyrpak

Hi, I'm excited to be part of this group. I love thinking/talking about reading and writing. I just published a collection of short stories on Kindle. Here's a description:

Dating My Vibrator (and other true fiction) is a collection of nine true and almost true short stories all based (unfortunately) on my own dating experience. After nineteen years of marriage I was thrust into a brave new world of dating: online, offline, standing in line, listening to lines. And I have survived to tell these tales. CAUTION: if you’re contemplating divorce, these stories may convince you to consider marriage counseling. If you’re out there dating, chances are you will relate. OMG! Here’s a scary thought: maybe you’ve met some of these guys. Names have been changed to protect the guilty.

Amal Bissessar (amalbissessar) | 3 comments Amal Bissessar wrote If Tomorrow Never Comes  by Amal Bissessar If Tomorrow Never Comes

synopsis: Michael Conner was the child of two great parents who loved him. He had friends that very few are fortunate to have and he was one of the richest kids in the world. After the untimely death of his parents when he was just a child, Michael learnt that money and power isn't always enough to protect you from the pains of life. Nothing seemed to be able to ease his pain and he finally decides to leave this town and everyone that he knew. Little did he know that fate would lead him back to the bitter-sweet town of Syria. It has been fifteen years since his parents' death and a lot about Michael has changed. He is reunited with his childhood friends including Emily, the one girl he ever loved. Michael soon finds that his friends have all led a less than fantastic life. In fact, while reuniting with and falling completely in love with Emily once more, he comes to learn of the pain that each of them has faced. If Tomorrow Never Comes is a book that explores the less than blissful side of life. It is filled with tributes to the millions of people that have experienced the pain that is brought on when someone you love dies; to children that live in a household with domestic violence or to children that are abandoned and grow up in an orphanage; to people that are struggling financially; and for the millions of people that know what it is like to love someone and not be loved in return, or even more painful, to love someone and never find the courage to tell them how you feel.

Your book sounds interesting, but might I suggest you tighten up your synopsis. The blurb tells you what the book is about, but it doesn't really have a hook, that emphasis that intrigues a reader.

David Simpson (davidsimpson) | 4 comments Post-Human by David Simpson

here you can read the first 20 pages of the book
http://post-humannovel.com/page1.html

Synopsis:
The future should have been perfect. Microscopic robots known as nans could repair any damage to your body, keep you young by resetting your cellular clocks, and allow you to download upgrades like intelligence, muscle strength, and eyesight. You were supposed to be able to have anything you wanted with a simple thought, to be able to fly without the aid of a machine, to be able to live forever. But when a small group of five terraformers working on Venus return to Earth, they discover that every other human in the solar system has been gruesomely murdered. Now, James Keats and his four companions must discover what happened to the rest of humanity and fight back if they wish to avoid the same, horrifying fate. Welcome to the post-human era.

Cliff Ball (cliffball) | 16 comments Out of Time



The 2nd edition of this science fiction time travel novel is now available on Nook and Smashwords and whenever Amazon gets around to updating, for $.99 on all 3 platforms for the foreseeable future. Unless, of course, time travelers come back to inform me I need to increase the price.

In the future, scientists discover that all time is fluid. Past, present, and future all exist at once, but time can still be changed. The US government decides to go to the past and right what once went wrong. The story takes place mostly in the 20th century, where our heroes meet Anne Frank, John F. Kennedy, just to name a few. Find out what happens when they return to their present.

My latest story collection:

Killers and Demons by A. F. Stewart

Creep into the pages to greet terror.
Killers and Demons is a collection of five horror stories where the gruesome murderers don’t get caught and evil triumphs.

What happens if you awake, afraid, alone and in complete darkness? If you find someone wants your heart for Valentine’s, literally? Or if you come face to face with evil on the dark streets of historic London? You would end up dead, of course.
Come spend some time with the homicidal and savour their kills, dance with demons as they hunt and watch the blood drip slowly, sweetly from their fingers.

Killers and Demons will send chills down your spine.

Lena | 24 comments My urban fantasy is the first in a series. The Superiors by Lena Hillbrand

A synopsis of The Superiors


Vampires rule the world. Humans are their livestock.

Although Draven belongs to the master race of Superiors, the name the vampires have given themselves, he can’t afford his own human. He clings to the lower rungs of society, struggling to pay rent and obey the strict laws of society. Then one night he captures Cali, a human runaway.

Draven must return the girl, but he can’t stop thinking about her. He returns to feed on her often and begins to remember his own humanity as he spends more time with her. As he learns to sympathize with the human and see her as more than an animal, he struggles to protect her from other vampires. But Draven can’t keep others from feeding on Cali unless he buys her. He vows to make the purchase, no matter what he has to sacrifice to afford a human.

His quest for Cali starts innocently enough, but soon leads him deeper into a tangled web of danger, violence, betrayal and murder.

Dale Ibitz (goodreadscomdale_ibitz) My debut novel has been out for a month now. It's a YA fantasy. Fire in the Blood (Last Moon Rising) by Dale Ibitz

Global warming is playing havoc on Earth, and when 17 year-old Haley tumbles to a parallel world, she discovers that Earth's issues stem from a war between the Eyids, the gods of nature. Because her necklace is a stone that holds the power of the Air Eyid, Haley's the key to stopping the war.

Haley's first instinct is to jet that insane world and head back to Earth, but she's taken hostage by Tuggin, a snarky Eyidoran who kidnaps her by knife point. Despite the kidnapee-kidnapper relationship, Tuggin insists he's trying to protect her, and Haley kind of forgets her plans to escape as she's sucked in by Tuggin's hall-god looks.

It turns out that Tuggin belongs to a coven of witches who has plans to control Eyidora. After eavesdropping and hearing him receive an order to neutralize her, she decides to take action. She's not sure exactly what it means to be neutralized, but she figures it might have something to do with torture or death. She jets, planning to go home to Earth; unfortunately she jets into the desert where she almost dies.

She's saved by Ian, a crazy-hot guy from Earth that she used to crush on, but who is also a fellow Eyidoran. But hall-god looks, again, blinds Haley to the danger surrounding her, and she's lulled into a sense of security.

Haley winds up sandwiched between Tuggin and Ian, constantly guessing at their ulterior motives, and whether they want to kiss her or kill her. With her stone of power, Haley's forced to make a choice that will decide the fate of all the worlds. But who should she trust, who should she fight, and who is the one with fire in his blood bent on betraying them all?

Eric Hendrixson | 2 comments My first book is called Bucket of Face. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/95...

Synopsis:
Thirteen years after a police officer searching a suspected child molester's home spilled a vial of silver pollen, America is still struggling with how to recognize its sentient fruit population. Charles is a normal guy working at a doughnut shop until an apple and a banana shoot each other in a mafia dispute, leaving a briefcase full of foreign currency and a specimen bucket at the corner booth. When Charles turns the wiseguys into doughnuts and steals their luggage, hoping for a better life for himself and his kiwi fruit girlfriend, he finds himself in the middle of a mafia war. As his girlfriend travels the DC metro area, selling off the contents of the bucket, Charles finds he is the target of a seasoned hit-tomato, who happens to be the biggest Michael Jackson fan who ever lived.

Yeah, it's kind of weird. You can read excerpts on Amazon with the Browse Inside the Book feature or on GoogleBooks.

Alan (plumboz) Hi,

My book has actually been out for a while and in an effort to get the next one done sometime this century I don't spend much time online anymore. But I heard that you were doing a Q&A with Lexi Revellian and since I have enjoyed her work since I first saw samples on YouWriteOn.com I couldn't help but join in here.

Anyway, my book is a comic novel of international intrigue called Boomerang. A former NBA power forward turned not very successful jazz guitarist has to take an assignment from a completely unofficial branch of the US intelligence community in order to rescue his guitar from the pawn shop. It is available as an ebook or paperback. The paperback is currently receiving a cover art makeover to match it up with the ebook.

My influences are P.G. Wodehouse, Donald E. Westlake, Douglas Adams and Mark Twain, to mention just a few. Some reviewers have commented on the cinematic feel of the book, comparing it to the films of the Coen brothers, Quentin Tarantino and "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World".

Pamela Brown (PamelaKayNobleBrown) | 25 comments Hi everyone. I am pleased to announce the release of my second book Handcuffs and a Pyramid of Satin. Handcuffs and a Pyramid of Satin by Pamela Kay Noble Brown

(Christian Fiction/Suspense/Romance/Thriller)

Room 222 was a hilarious high school sitcom back in the early 1970's. But there was nothing at all funny about the series of twos in Kelly Cavenaugh's life. Kelly thought about her current situation and breathed a pathetic sigh as she sat waiting in the airport for her connecting flight. She had been married for exactly two years, two months, and two days and already she knew she'd married the wrong man.

Desperate to get her joy back, Kelly takes off for her birthplace of Frankfurt, Germany, for the adventure of a lifetime. But she soon finds out that life isn't always greener on the other side of the fence. In fact, it can be downright deadly!

Check it out if you get a chance. Hope you enjoy. :)

C.S. Splitter | 46 comments The Reluctant (Crayder Chronicles) by C.S. Splitter

Action, adventure, suspense, and thriller in one story told with a liberal dose of humor.

Tom’s problems are not unique. His business is failing and his wife has to work too many hours to make ends meet. He is under some rather large financial pressures and wants more from his marriage and his life.

He finds his respite in the air as a private pilot. Unfortunately for Tom, he is behind on payments for his plane and is forced to take odd jobs from a local crime boss. Tom is no criminal, but the errands he is running are just slightly on the wrong side of the law and the money is almost good enough to allow him to make his plane payments.

Just as things begin to come under some semblance of control, he meets a woman who just might represent the adventure he seeks. He soon discovers that appearances, and beautiful women, can sometimes be deceiving.

“The Reluctant” is the first in the Crayder Chronicles series and yet is a stand alone story with a satisfying conclusion of its own.

80,000 Words (approximately 320 pages)

Glen Strathy | 9 comments Hello,

May I introduce my children's novel for girls 9-12, Dancing on the Inside? Here's a summary...

Dancing on the Inside by Glen C. Strathy Ever since her grandparents gave her a DVD of Swan Lake, twelve-year old Jenny Spark has wanted to be a dancer. But on her first day of ballet class, she suffers a panic attack and makes a horrifying discovery. She’s terrified of dancing in front of the other kids, and as for actually performing for an audience? Forget it.

Yet Jenny refuses to give up her dream. With determination and a little ingenuity, she finds ways to observe ballet classes without actually participating. She trains in the safety of her room, while hiding the truth from her parents. Then Jenny meets her exact opposite: Ara Reyes, an outgoing, spontaneous, and accident-prone girl who loves dancing but has always been overlooked.

The girls’ friendship blossoms as they help each other uncover their real talents. Ara’s dancing takes a leap forward and Jenny discovers she has an amazing gift for choreography. With the support of the school’s newest teacher, Jenny’s original ballet might just make it on stage … but will she?

It does sound a bit generic. You could play around with it a bit or flip it about. Something like Apocalypse Undead or Hoard of the Apocalypse, or Apocalypse, Zombie Style.
